We have resumed all services Monday through Saturdays. We are so happy to be back serving you at full levels!
The Transportation Safety Administration has issued a directive that all people riding public transportation or in a transportation hub are required to wear masks. If you don’t have one, the driver will give you one. It must be worn when you are on-board. We expect this requirement to be in place until September 13, 2021.
We will monitor persons onboard or in the transit center for anyone who is not wearing a mask and, unless such persons are exempt from the CDC Order, seeking compliance from such persons; and At the earliest opportunity, disembarking any person who refuses to comply, or make them leave our transit facility.
Fares are not being charged at this time.
We want to keep all of our passengers and drivers safe, so please stay home if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms.
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat

We have been working with the City of Tonasket for several years to move the bus stop/transfer location away from the PUD (across the parking lot from Grants). We have received approval from the Tonasket City Council to move the stop to Western just south of First St (north of the Eagles Club behind North Valley Hospital Extended Care).
The change will take effect on Monday, July 26, 2021.
The schedule remains the same, the location of the stop is the only change.
If you need to park your car, please make sure to get approval from a nearby business owner.
